Abstract:

An exploration of the basic concepts of phonological theory, this book is
particularly concerned with the concepts of sameness and difference, each a
sine qua non of classification. During the development of modern
linguistics over the past hundred years or so it has generally been assumed
that the criteria for classification are to be found in a segmented version
of the phonetic continuum of spoken language. This is still largely the
case today, even though the system of native speaker knowledge of language
is seen as a highly abstract mental representation of that knowledge. This
book questions the basis of such assumptions, in particular segmentation,
abstractness, monosystemicity and derivation.

Coverage includes:
*Aspects of phonology at the core of the subject which are often ignored or
passed over very briefly in the available literature
*Recent developments across a range of phonological theories
*Key issues in phonological theory which relate to the application of
sameness and difference: biuniqueness, monosystemicity, derivation,
specification, abstractness, segmentation, panlectal grammars.

This book is available in North America from Columbia University Press.
